Lyrics

Alvin:
I feel tears welling up from down deep inside
Like my heart's gonna break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake

You might think that I was taking it hard since she gave me the final goodbye
Because the wagers that I hide my sorrow when I might break right down and cry

The Chipmunks:
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch
Heartaches a goin' to the inside, my tears are holding back they're tryin' not to fall

My heart's out of the running, true love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches, and the winner loses all

Alvin:
One day I ventured in love never once suspecting
What the final results would be

Now I live in fear of waking up each morning
And finding that you're gone from me
There's an aching pain in my heart for the name of the one that I never replace
Somebody who came up to win her, and I came out in second place

The Chipmunks:
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch
Heartaches a goin' to the inside, my tears are holding back they're tryin' not to fall

My heart's out of the running, true love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches, and the winner loses all
